Weather in Cascais

Cascais has throughout the year a comfortable climate for outdoor activities. Especially during the summer temperatures are great. The days are long, warm and the beaches are windy and therefore ideal for water sports.

The Guincho wind is a thermal wind, caused due to an extreme temperature difference between the sea and land creating a difference in pressure above the beach. This means that if there are clouds above the land the thermal effect will be less strong. During the summer months Cascais has lots of sun, ensuring a very strong wind almost every day! Not only kitesurfers and windsurfers enjoy these strong winds, also natorious sailing cups, such as the America’s Cup, have discovered the famous thermal winds of Cascais. This spectecular event is definately worth visiting. Rent your villa in Cascais in time!

Usually the wind is less strong at the golf courses located further from the sea. A gentle breeze will keep your round of golf pleasant though.

In the table below the temperature, rain, wind and wave averages are displayed.
